Oh My....I have NOT done a very good job on blogging lately. I have MANY catch-up posts to do, but for today, the topic is S.N.O.W.
Yep, it snowed here a bit yesterday, a bit more throughout the night, and right now, as I'm typing this -- it's snowing again.
This snowfall is the first real snow for us here in south central Kansas this winter. My VERY meteorologically-minded husband would remind you all that it's a bit abnormal for us to wait this long for snow.
While parts of the rest of the country have certainly received adequate amounts of snowfall -- we have been a bit dry.
If you've been following our family for awhile now, you'll know that Luke was a late walker -- didn't walk until 16 months.
So, a year ago, Luke was a "beginner walker." Thus, I didn't take him outside to walk in the snow.
Therefore, today was a first for Luke -- walking in the snow with SNOWBOOTS!
Of course, as soon as we got outside, he headed over to our next door neighbors' (Luke's favorite neighbors), Willis and Joan....Willis had a path in his driveway, and Luke headed to Willis' "work garage" -- a place where a little boy could get into a lot of trouble if he wanted to....Needless to say, visits to this garage are most definitely supervised.
Luke also headed across the street to see another favorite neighbor, Wayne. I didn't get any photos there, however.
As many of you locals already know, the City of Newton doesn't get any prizes for excellent snowplowing (but, I do want to say I am thankful for what they do)....So, our little street certainly is NOT on the list of plowed streets.
Thankfully, our neighbor and Luke's buddy, Willis, does a little bit of street-clearing for us. Luke enjoyed watching this process.
And, as in the life of any good little 2 year-old, many good things end in tears....You can't fully tell in this photo, but Luke is crying. I don't even remember why....But, I had to capture it.
A trip back in time
